I know I have a post most everyday, but my daughter is in the hospital and even though she's 19 I don't want to leave her alone for too long at a time. I just came home to email her instructors at college. I don't think is any thing serious, seems like a really bad stomach virus, but they are going to run some tests. I hope to be back scrapping soon!

This layout was done for Noel's challenge this week. I had so many pictures from this day, I decided to do another page. This was based loosely on Noel's sketch and with paper from her March kit. The monkeys were stamped on white cardstock and I used colored pencils to fill them in.
Week 3 of the 8 week challenge at Kits & Pieces, this week's challenge was to create a layout with circles. If you signed up on their site when I had the RAK, please log on and vote for me this week. This is the first week they are allowing members to vote for their favorite layout.
This was the first really nice day we had had in a long time and Logen had a ball at our new neighborhood park. I took a ton of pictures, until he finally told me not to take anymore! I think this is the most photographs that I have ever put in a layout.

I am making a wedding album as a gift. It was hard to get started on this because I am not putting pictures in the album. I am creating a 20 page album and I am doing repetitive pages, so once I get one layout done I just do the same thing over again. I got 10 pages done yesterday here is a sample of some of the pages.

We don't have many wedding or honeymoon pictures, we eloped to Lake Tahoe and my best friend flew in from Alaska to be the Best Woman/Maid of Honor, this picture is really dark but since I don't have many of us together I wanted to scrap it anyway.
I usually paint raw chipboard, but I left these squares the way they were and inked the edges, the color matched my sweater. I stitched the squares together with rickrack and the heart with ribbon. I did paint the heart and the arrow. I didn't need much journaling, so just wrote around the heart.

The challenge over at Scrap Your Crap this week was flowers. I have had these flowers forever and I don't like them. They came in a kit I bought at Costco and there were thousands of the these little paper flowers in the kit. So thanks for the challenge and helping me use up some these crappy flowers!
Do you want the rest of these flowers? Be the first person to ask for them and they are yours!

I signed up for an ATC swap that Amy started. I have made only one of these before. Today I was just trying to get started, come up with an idea and get the supplies together. Here's a before picture. The magnet set is my inspiration for the ATCs.
Here's one more card I made this morning.
Posted by Lisa at 6:30 PM
I made these cards with the leftover paper from my "hugs" layout. This is the easiest way for me to make cards, I am more of scrapper than cardmaker but when you have the scraps already out and have a color scheme it's easy to make the cards. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the cards with owls on them, I cut a circle out of the front of the card and stamped the owl on the inside.

This certainly isn't the prettiest layout I've ever done. But probably the most journaling that I've ever done. I hope my future generations get a kick out of seeing a real vinyl record and learning how much I love music. I don't have a turntable anymore so the record was useless sitting in a drawer.

I managed to finish one layout this evening, I think I still need to complete one more to catch up on goal of finishing one a day in March.
This layout is of my daughter when she was six. I mainly used Noel's Hopscotch kit. I know I've said this before, but I love the paper in this kit! The photo is not that great, I hate to take the pic at night with the flash on.

I took the scenic route on my trip to the lake on Friday and for now I want to share a couple photos.
My faithful companion Casey settled in for the ride on a Sponge Bob blankie.
I saw this establishment in Huntingdon, Tennessee and had to stop and take a picture. The Redneck Supply House seems to have everything any Tennessee Redneck would need!
I hope to get a layout done this afternoon, I will post later.

I seldom use multiple photos in my layouts, I used six photos in this one and I rarely scrap photos of myself because I am the one behind the camera! I used my Heidi Grace pack I bought at Fiskadeals, they are running a new special every day this month so check it out. Click on the picture to get a better view of the layout.

I very seldom say less is more when it comes to scrapping, but I felt like this little card didn't need anything else. I used Sakura glaze pens to fill the flower in, I really like these pens, and they aren't that expensive either.
I couldn't stand it! Less is not more, so I took it out on the envelope!

This is my entry for our Doodling Fiskateer Challenge, the layout had to pertain to the weather. My poor little hyicynth flowers were all warm and happy one day and then the next day they got five inches of snow dumped on them and now today it was back up in the 60s again!

This is the layout of the day, so far I've managed to post a layout every day in March. The flowers were cut from a sheet of patterned paper and adhered to page in layers using foam dots for dimension. The hinges on the side of photo make it able to "open" to reveal the journaling under the photo, I didn't want to take away from this photo so I hid the journaling.

I did this layout for Lesli's challenge to create a layout using no adhesive. I found out that the crop a dile really smushes small eyelets, but I didn't use any adhesive. I wrapped the ribbon aroung the page and tied it in the back, I die cut letters as charms and attached with tiny brads.

I have done so many layouts of the boys lately that I really wanted to something "girly", in addition to the stitched flower I add paper, plastic, silk and metal flowers to this page, then I anchored all these flowers with a transparent floral border.
I participated in the LOAD (layout a day) challenge at Big Picture Scrapbooking in January and enjoyed it so much that I have challenged myself to do the same in March. So far so good this is my fourth layout this month.

I have had these templates for awhile and finally got around to trying one out. What I learned on my first try at using them is if you are using more that one color of thread only poke holes in one color at a time, its hard to figure out what color goes where once you poke all the holes.

I didn't have any racing embellishments so I had to get creative on this layout. The coke can is explained in my last post. The checkered flags are clip art that I printed on cardstock and cut out, I attached them with foam dots for dimension. The title I hand cut after printing out a blurred picture of race car on photo paper. Warning Heidi Swapp mask letter stick to photos! I had to tape the letters to the back of the race car photo and then cut the title out.

I broke all the rules of the color wheel and balancing! I did manage to keep repetition with the circles. This was for the class Scrapalicious! at My Creative Classroom, I must give all the credit for this layout to my instructor Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. The circles were made in a mosaic style, I ran a piece of black cardstock through the xyron, then put cut up scraps of all shapes on the sticky side of the cardstock, then covered the whole thing with red glitter (to appear as grout) and cut circles with 3 different sized punches. I adhered the circles with different heights of foam tape and dots.
